The learned author has missed many aspects of Nepalese culture. The so called Virupakshya is described by him as a nobel man. If the author had studied more carefully he would not have missed the third eye indicating that the figure is one of the manifestations of Shiva and not a nobel man.
Tourism in Nepal
Nepal is a tourist's paradise with an infinite variety of interesting things to see and do. Nepal has many things to offer the visitor the flourishing of art and architecture a demonstrated by the temples of Kathmandu Valley, the natural beauties of the soaring peaks of Himalayas including Mountain Everest and others.

Diwas I wish to thank you very much for helping me make our second trip to Nepal so very satisfying and interesting. It was ten years that we last visited Nepal and the Kathmandu valley. The experience of that trip made us wish to come back here once again some day. Once again thank and we wish for you only the best in all your endeavors in the years to come.

We enjoyed Kathmandu very much. Sometines it was difficult because we have less knowledge about Buddhism and Hinduism. The country is beautiful and the people are very nice and friendly. The people are very happy; however their lifestyle is totally different from ours. We thank you for your enthusiastic explanations.

We really enjoyed our stay in Kathmandu and we hope to come back soon to discover the wildlife, the jungle, and the mountains. Wishing that this country will remain as it is; with its culture, traditions and friendly people.
